Accuracy of EPS prescription pricing

Accuracy of EPS prescription pricing

When prescriptions are received electronically by the Pricing Authority they will be routed to a ‘rules engine’ which will support the automatic processing of prescriptions for pricing. It is hoped that this will improve the accuracy levels of prescription pricing as there will be less scope for human error which is a particular problem with current paper based processes.

PSNC has a key role in conducting external audits of the accuracy of the Pricing Authority prescription pricing. PSNC is in discussion with the Pricing Authority on the audits that will be conducted in future on the automated pricing of prescriptions submitted electronically.
